Resolving Disputes with Shareholder Dispute Solicitors

“As Shareholder Dispute Solicitors, we specialise in resolving shareholder conflicts through advice, negotiation, and litigation, protecting our clients’ rights and interests within the company.”


Our primary goal is to resolve disputes outside of court. This approach often leads to quicker, less costly resolutions, benefiting all parties involved.

If parties can reach a mediated solution, potential actions could include the continuing shareholders buying out, the company purchasing shares, shareholders receiving the company through demergers, or the acquisition of a new holding company, which may involve a share exchange for shareholders.


If litigation becomes necessary, we are fully prepared to represent your interests in court.

Our shareholder dispute lawyers are skilled in managing the different actions available to shareholders during disputes:

  • Unfair prejudice petitions, when other shareholders buy out the shareholder that has suffered the unfair prejudice;
  • Derivative action, where the director(s) are in breach of his/her duties;
  • Winding up of the company;
  • Breach of directors’ duties;
  • Underperforming directors or shareholders;
  • Section 944 petitions; and
  • Salary disputes.
  • D&O Insurance 

If you are facing exclusion from the day-to-day management of the business, failing to receive entitled dividends or profit, or believe that your fellow shareholders are working against your interests, you may have the right to seek redress under the Companies Act 2006.
